The tutorial style poses questions that encourage problem-solving.Features include: * How to measure the body, with 13 illustrative photographs * Blank professional worksheets to copy and use * 40 scaled pattern templates with all markings * How to draw and mark a sized pattern with darts, pleats and so on * Modelling and draping to design and fit a pattern * Working with fabric grain and bias * Photos of garments in process and finished * The 40 garment selections begin with a basic skirt and progress from a fitted jacket and suit to an asymmetrical balloon dress, flounce dress, tissue dresses and more. All require just a few pattern pieces.
